Experimental Results of round bubble plumes in various conditions of very wide range are re-examined. It is showed that liquid volum flux is clearly parameterized with using only one non-dimensional parameter M, which represents the relative importance of the gas volume flux at the source and the total water depth in the nor-dimensional solutions. And a new empirical formula of the entrainment coefficient in the single plume model is proposed with M. Results of this model agree well with those
